Kay has made it her mission to speak to all who would listen about the options of below injury recovery for those with spinal cord injuries. She talks about the amazing journey she and her son, Josh, have been on that has resulted in his ability to walk againi. She established Warrior Momz to help give hope/ advocacy to families dealing with spinal cord injury.
Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will discuss using hypnotherapy wtih Spinal Cord Injury patients. Science tells us that patients afflicted with spinal cord injuries resulting in para or qualdriplegia will never walk or do many things again, but is that really true? As a former pharmaceutical researcher and RN who has read through many spinal cord injury charts, Dr. Joanna has always wondered about whether the spinal cord could, through the power of the mind, regenerate itself to help a patient heal their injury or at least regain some of their mobility and independence.
Join them for a most interesting discussion as Nick will be talking about using hypnotherapy on patients with these challenging injuries and the surprising and enlightening results he has seen.

There are very few moments that can happen in one’s life that can change everything forever. In a split second your relationships change, your job, your finances, your home, your clothes, your independence. One moment gone terribly wrong and it’s all different. On May 23, 2010, Rachelle Friedman was playfully pushed into a pool by her best friend at her bachelorette party just weeks before her wedding. She hit the bottom of the pool head first, breaking her neck and causing a severe spinal cord injury. Rachelle had to face a difficult fact. She was now paralyzed from the chest down and would be a quadriplegic for the rest of her life.
Rachelle could have easily given up on life, constantly asked why her and wondered what if? But she made the decision to move forward in her life with positivity and determination. 13 weeks after her injury she began playing adapted sports such as wheelchair rugby, hand cycling and even surfing. Within a year she had appeared on The Today Show, Headline News, MSNBC, Inside Edition and numerous news outlets both nationally and internationally to share her story of love, commitment, loyalty, and perseverance. She has been featured in Cosmopolitan magazine, In Touch magazine and as a guest on Vh1′s Couples Therapy.
Grief Diaries hosts Lynda Cheldelin Fell & Angie Cartwright invite listeners to share the evening with Rachelle on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at 6:00 pm pacific / 9 pm eastern. Listeners are welcome to call the live broadcast at 855-345-4718.

Martin Heng was born in the UK, with the travelling gene, he says that he has visited more than 40 countries. Often his globe-trotting adventures revolved around exploration on two-wheels, an avid cyclist he has peddled through destinations as diverse as northern France, Japan, New Zealand’s South Island and Tanzania. For almost a full decade Heng was loosely home-based in Asia, but worked only enough to fund his travel addiction. What self-professed independent traveller would not dream of working for Lonely Planet? Melbourne, Australia beckoned and two years later (1999) Martin was working for Lonely Planet. He worked his way up through several positions into the demanding role of Trade Publishing and Editorial Manager responsible for coordination and publishing of all the guidebooks, a gargantuan task that is accomplished with an in-house team of some 60 staff and an army of freelance authors scattered around the globe. In November 2010, a motorist broadsided Martin while he was biking. He gained consciousness and began to comprehend the realities of being a quadriplegic. Martin has worked tirelessly with a team of medical professionals since the accident and he is now able to walk short distances with a walking aid, an incredible feat. The accident has not diminished Heng’s passion for travel; it has opened a new door at Lonely Planet with its Travel for All project and Martin’s new broad-reaching role as Accessible Travel Manager and Editorial Adviser.
Spencer was thirteen when he was paralyzed in a snowboarding accident. Prior to the acident, he loved swimming in the ocean, playing basketball and snowboarding. He used to revel in the freedom of riding his bike with his friends, the wind flying in his hair.On February 1, 2010, Spencer's life changed forever. He crashed his snowboard and shattered his C4/C5 vertebrae, sustaining a severe spinal cord injury. Unable to breathe, move or feel anything below chest level, Spencer remained hospitalized for over three months. But Spencer never accepted the doctors prognosis and he never gave up.
Now, four years and six rehabilitation sessions a week later, Spencer is making amazing progress. He has sensation and movement in almost every part of his body. He can push his own wheelchair (with power assist wheels), write with his left hand, stand, and take unassisted steps. He now drives independently in a specially adapted car. He is also a high school senior with top grades. Spencer has demonstrated courage and an exemplary work ethic in his recovery. He also has a great sense of humor.
I sit in a Unique Place in History! I’m a Multiple Traumatic Brain Injury, Brain Aneurysm, and Coma Survivor Who at the Same Time Worked Myself up from the Very Bottom into Becoming a Peer Supporter Advocate Activist for People with Disabilities and a Brain Injury Radio Network Host.
At Walton options for independent living where I work, we are people with disabilities fighting for your rights. Every day, and there are over 400 centers and many of them are going to be at a National Disability Rights event called APRIL next week which is the United Voice of Rural Independent Living in Rural America doing the same thing all across the USA. They are busting a move to make a better place to live for all of us!
The big problem! Too many fighting and arguing over which disability gets this and what agency gets that forgetting the people with any type of disability. No matter what and breaking hearts and breaking dreams. So why not forget if it’s a brain injury are whatever and bust a move working together with me to change this now! It’s almost like it’s become a survivors club and at each club fights for the funds and keeps them from the others, and so people with disabilities are actually fighting each other. That’s wrong!
Working at a Center for Independent Living It Is Much like I’m at an Outpost for What Is Going on in the Disability Movement and for That I Feel Very Honored because I see things that most people don’t know that are going on in the community and in the country and in the world to help people with disabilities.
Please join me in welcoming Karen Pedevilla from IPAS. Karen is the Education and Trainer Director from Indiana's protection and advocacy center. Tune in and together we can make a difference!
